Russia turned the Kuril Islands into an impregnable fortress. Such conclusions were made by the Chinese edition of Sohu, referring to the conclusion of military experts from the PRC. They analyzed the results of a recent air defense exercise in the Far East. The MK expert assessed the conclusions of the Chinese.
“The Russian Federation continues to strengthen its military power in the Far East and the four Kuril Islands,” the publication says. The author obviously has in mind the 4 islands of the South Kuriles, which Japan claims, calling them its “northern territories”. These claims by Tokyo have prevented countries from concluding a peace treaty since World War II.about:blank
Chinese analysts have noted the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems deployed in the Russian Kuril Islands, which recently caused panic among the neighbors, revealingly repelling an air raid of a simulated enemy during the exercise.
Alexei Leonkov, a military expert and editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, spoke about the tasks the air defense systems are solving in the Kuril Islands.
– The S-300s are quite mobile and can be moved into the deployment area, creating an echeloned defense system with other complexes, for example, such as Tor and Buk. It is not a secret for anyone that lately it has not been calm in our eastern borders. The Americans are busy reformatting the Indo-Pacific Command, investing tens of billions of dollars in this. According to their version, this is being done in order to turn the territory into a more protected one. The point is that this territory will host medium-range missiles, which the Americans plan to deploy, ostensibly only against China. In fact, these missiles can reach our Far Eastern territory, and even part of Eastern Siberia.
A new US fortified area is also being formed in Alaska. Aviation is being transferred there, ports are being deepened there. For example, the port of Nome received a billion dollars to make it more suitable for receiving large ships. I mean ships of the first rank: aircraft carriers, frigates, missile destroyers, maybe even nuclear boats. Given the activity of the States, our eastern borders must be strengthened. Now we are building anti-aircraft defense in the east, then it will be anti-missile. All US forces that are now deploying in this region are carriers of missiles, or, as they say, “air attack weapons” that must be intercepted.
One more point – there are several of the largest American bases in Japan. In addition, there are naval bases among these bases, which also accept large-tonnage ships. Russia has repeatedly said that the question of signing a new peace treaty with Japan is possible only on conditions if Japan, firstly, becomes non-aligned, and, secondly, if there are no American troops on its territory. But Japan is not abandoning these bases.
Therefore, before Tokyo declares something, it is better for him to look at himself in the mirror. They now have a war party that is pushing a bill that would allow Japanese self-defense forces to operate across the globe. If you look at these forces, it becomes clear that this is a full-size army. It has aircraft carriers, ships, an air force, missiles, and so on. One involuntarily wonders: when the overlord of Japan is the United States of America, they kick it and say: “Forward! Attack! ”, Are we going to fight them off with single complexes? Of course not. Therefore, we are systematically strengthening all our borders, in accordance with the plans of the Russian General Staff.
